Establish an LLC in Abu Dhabi - Limited Liabilty Company in Abu Dhabi

The establishment of an LLC (Limited Liability Company) is particularly easy in Abu Dhabi. Over here, the license is issued directly for two years instead of just one year and the company is exempt from the obligation to have an office address for two years as well. It is sufficient to provide a private address. This results in a considerable cost saving, however, it is not allowed to employ staff. Nominal capital isn’t mandatory in practice – but a nominal capital should be available. A so-called “local sponsor” (a local business partner) is still mandatory in some cases for an LLC. He would receive a certain amount annually – but no real profit sharing -, so these costs should be taken into account.
